A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
Angel Falls by Kristin Hannah

In bed I like to read:
page turners that ward off sleep or happily-ever-afters that bring sweet dreams

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
postsecret, OMGUW, onesentence.org, MakesMeThink, sixwordlovestory

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
small calamities and needless worries -- i think too much

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
buckle down, power through, look up :)
